New Protests In Ferguson

Two prominent citizens of Ferguson, Missouri join presenter Mark Whittaker to discuss how to tackle the racial tensions that split the city.

Studio guest Professor Arun Sundararajan has relatives in the city and visits often. He gives us his personal perspective. As an academic at New York University's Stern Business School, his field of expertise is the sharing economy. He explains exactly what that is and why it can help us solve social and psychological problems.

Michelle Fleury reports from New York, where sky high prices for sky high apartments have soared out of reach of Big Apple natives and right into the hands of Chinese multi-millionaires, who are snapping up Manhattan real estate for its investment potential.
In Singapore, David Kuo talks about that $300 million fine for Standard Chartered Bank; from Beijing John Sudworth tells us about a damaging baby food recall for Heinz and the terrifying tale of the sleeping air traffic controllers.
